A wonderful family time!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect weekend getaway for our family. The Bunkhouse was ideal for our family and accommodated all of our needs. The front porch is really where all the fun was though. Grandkids learned to cast their fishing lines, early morning coffee gatherings, evening sunsets and the excitement of animals right in front of us. The ride through the property was beautiful but as like any safari, there are no guarantees on what you will see. But who cares, our family was all together and we have wonderful memories to talk about and laugh over. Cannot forget to share that we had no mosquitos, ticks or chiggers!!!

The perfect setting for our diverse family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Bunkhouse. As a family we have camped every fall for years, but as we have gotten older and babies have started coming, we needed to upgrade our accommodations to include more comfortable sleeping. We have tried several rentals over the past few years but they were always lacking in one way or another. This year we hit the jackpot! It is the perfect "camping" experience. There is great outdoor space to explore, large back and front porches, outdoor grill, fire rings (firewood provided) in the front and back, lots of animals, and fishing, We cooked all our meals at the property but there are plenty of restaurants in Clifton just 3 miles away as well as a grocery store for those last minute or forgotten items. The only down side for our family was there wasn't enough seating in the living area for 8 adults. The property owners were very accommodating and responsive. We would definitely recommend it to others who enjoy the outdoor experience with amenities.
